TRAVELLING TO WEYMOUTH
Where should I fly to?
The best way of travelling to Weymouth for your English language course is to fly to London Heathrow Airport.
If you arrive at Heathrow on the Sunday before 17.00, you can travel to Weymouth on our private WEC transfer coach.
The journey from Heathrow to Weymouth is about 2 hours 45 minutes.
You can also fly to other airports but if you come on your own you will need us to book a taxi transfer for you - see the Dates & Prices page for details.
What do I do when I arrive at Heathrow?
After that you will collect your luggage from the "Baggage Reclaim" and then you will go through into the arrivals hall where our leaders will be waiting for you.
Where will I meet the WEC leaders?
They wait just by the barrier where passengers come through into the arrivals hall. Each leader wears a blue shirt with the WEC logo on it and has a WEC poster which they hold up so that you can see them easily.
When all the students have arrived, the leaders will take you to the transfer coach and will travel down to Weymouth with you.
What time do the transfer coaches leave?
We recommend that you book a flight as close to these times as possible in order to avoid long waiting times at the airport.
What about my return journey?
Our leaders will take you to the airport, help you check in and make sure you get through passport control safely. You will be given the leaders' mobile numbers so that if you have any problems once you have gone through passport control, you can contact them and they will help you.
Our leaders will stay at the airport until your flight has taken off.
What happens if I fly to or from a different airport?
For the departure, the driver will collect you from your homestay, take you to the airport and help you check in and will then wait at the airport until your flight has taken off (please see the dates and prices page for details).
How do I book a place on the transfer coach?
If you wish to book a place on one of our transfer coaches, or wish us to book a taxi transfer for you, you will be able to order this on the form we send you.
You should complete and return the form as soon as you can in order to guarantee a place.
What happens if my parents want to take me to Weymouth?
Students making their own way to Weymouth should arrive at their homestay between 16.00 and 21.00 on the Sunday and should depart from their homestay by 10.00 on the Saturday at the end of the course.
Do I need a passport and visa?
Otherwise you should check with your nearest British Embassy, or Consulate, or look at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website at https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-visas-and-immigration/.
If you do need a visa, once we have received your booking and deposit, we will send you a Confirmation of Enrolment which you will need in order to apply for your visa. You should then tell us as soon as you have got your visa.
If your visa is refused, you should send us the refusal letter as soon as possible. Provided we receive the original letter of refusal at least one week before your course is due to start, we will then refund the money you have paid us minus an administrative fee of £50.
